KAWS’s body of work straddles the worlds of art and design to include paintings, murals, large-scale sculptures, street and public art, and graphic and product design. His work is infused with humour, humanity and affection for our times. KAWS’s cast of playful cartoon characters are drawn from pop-culture animations and form a distinctive artistic vocabulary.
The exhibition title KAWS: Companionship in the Age of Loneliness foregrounds the emotional content of the artist’s work. KAWS celebrates generosity, compassion and the deep human need we have for companionship.
